Museum Quality Eocene Fossil Bowfin Fish from Messel Pits, Germany:- Cyclurus (Amia) kehreri

Fabulous large bowfin fossil fish from the famous fossil site of messel germany. These fossils are found within extremely destructive bituminous oil shales, therefore the fossils are removed from this rock using a special technique called reverse transfer preparation, where the fossil is mounted onto a resin plate and then the destructive oil shale is then completely removed leaving the fossil on the resin plate. This is the only way messel fossils are prepared. These are genuine fossils mounted on the resin. Found:- Bituminous Shales, Eocene Period, Messel Pits, Messel, Nr. Frankfurt, Germany, Europe. Age:- 47 Million Years Old. Size of fish = 27.9 cm (11 inches) long. Overall Size = 40 cm (15.75 inches) wide by 19 cm (7.5 inches) high.
